Firebird: Ballerina Misty Copeland Shows a Young Girl How to Dance Like the Firebird (hc)
Product DescriptionBy Misty Copeland; Christopher Myers Illustrator
"Winner of multiple awards, Firebird is stunningly beautiful and inspiring. The text is a dialogue of encouragement from renowned American Ballet Theater soloist Misty Copeland to an aspiring young ballerina struggling with self-doubt. A powerful picture book for independent readers or an excellent choice for reading together." - Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor
In her debut picture book, Misty Copeland tells the story of a young girl--an every girl--whose confidence is fragile and who is questioning her own ability to reach the heights that Misty has reached. Misty encourages this young girl's faith in herself and shows her exactly how, through hard work and dedication, she too can become Firebird.
Lyrical and affecting text paired with bold, striking illustrations that are some of Caldecott Honoree Christopher Myers's best work, makes Firebird perfect for aspiring ballerinas everywhere.
